Zurab Topuridze Saperavi
Zurab Topuridze Saperavi is a delicate wine that has gentle aromas of cherries, strawberries and wildflowers. The palate is easy drinking and very approachable in style and is fresh with soft fruits and great elegance. It is medium bodied with a good balance between richness, acidity and minerality. This is a great introduction to this grape variety and style of Georgian wine without it being too wild.
Iberieli is a family winery run by Zurab Topuridze with 10 ha of vineyards in the Guria Region of West Georgia and 5 ha in the Kakheti Region of East Georgia. The name Iberieli – which was chosen by Zurab’s children – refers to the ancient people in Caucasus who made wine over several thousands of years ago, these people later became Georgians and are believed to be the inventers of Qvevri winemaking.
The family’s aim is to maintain authentic tradition of Qvevri wine making in Georgia, producing unique natural wines from native grapes and to set standards and true examples for their counterparts and friends.
Their wines are fermented naturally, without imported yeast and any other chemical and/or biological interventions. This way of winegrowing creates live, healthier wines and allows wine to truly represent terroir of origin.
The ancient tradition of quevri wine-making dates back over 7000 years, and the Georgians are currently seeking to give it special protected heritage status through UNESCO. Quevris are not the same as amphora – firstly, they are much larger, and are buried in the ground up their neck, to preserve a stable temperature.
The entire wine making process takes place within the quevri – initial fermentation right through to maturation, with the fermenting grape juice often being left on the skins and even grape stems to produce wines of exceptional flavour and complexity.
